    IT'S HARD OUT HERE FOR A WIMP
    by Ann Coulter
    March 8, 2006

    In case you missed the Oscars last Sunday night, here are the highlights:

    — Best song went to a musical tribute to the overseers of human sex slaves, an occupation known as "pimping";

    — best picture went to a movie about racism in Los Angeles;

    — best supporting actor went to the movie about how oil companies murder people; and

    — best supporting actress went to the movie about how pharmaceutical companies murder people.

    Curiously missing from Oscar night's festivities was any reference, even in passing, to the 150,000 brave Americans currently risking their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    On behalf of red state America, let me be the first to say: "Screw you, Hollywood."

    Although I must tell you, overall, this Academy Awards ceremony was a major strategic retreat by Hollywood. Despite all their Bolshevik bluster about how Democratic politicians won't stand up to Republicans, the Hollywood left is as scared of decent patriotic Americans as the Democrats are.

    "Brokeback Mountain" did not win best picture, "Munich" won nothing, and the Palestinian suicide bombers movie won nothing. There was no angry self-righteousness from Vanessa Redgrave against "Zionist hooligans," or from Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon for the Haitian boat people. There was no Bush-bashing. There was no Michael Moore. The host was not Whoopi Goldberg, so that's a big fat reward to every man, woman and child in America right there.

    This may have been the most American Oscars yet, if America consisted of beautiful airheads in $50,000 dresses. And that was just the guys in "Brokeback Mountain."

    I believe this marks the first time in Oscars history that an award recipient shouted, "Thank you, Jesus!" upon receiving his award. Admittedly, this was the only part of the speech that didn't have to be bleeped and it was for a song titled, "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp," but it's still a step forward.

    Jon Stewart, this year's host, was very funny — but not quite as funny as the fact that the audience didn't get the jokes. (There were a lot of actors in the audience.) Apparently, the one comedy bit capable of bringing down a room full of actors is: Ben Stiller hopping around in a green unitard.

    However liberal Stewart is personally, his best jokes are always mildly conservative.

    He twitted the Hollywood audience, saying:

    "I have to say it is a little shocking to see all these big names here, these huge stars. The Oscars is really, I guess, the one night of the year where you can see all your favorite stars without having to donate any money to the Democratic Party."

    Actually, between George Clooney's posturing and the ode to pimpdom winning "best song," I think Oscar night was more of a fund-raiser for the Republican Party.

    George Clooney made the only stand for liberal Hollywood, smugly declaring:

    "We are a little bit out of touch in Hollywood every once in a while. I think it's probably a good thing. We're the ones who talked about AIDS when it was just being whispered, and we talked about civil rights when it wasn't really popular. ... (T)his group of people gave Hattie McDaniel an Oscar in 1939 when blacks were still sitting in the backs of theaters. I'm proud ... to be part of this community, and proud to be out of touch."

    Forget about Hollywood being ahead of the big issues: Hollywood has never even been on time for the big issues. This is why, for example, in the middle of an epic war with Islamic fascists, Hollywood is still making movies about the Nazis. Now and then, just for variety, they tackle a more current topic, like the Jim Crow era.

    Even on AIDS — which is something you'd expect people like Clooney to know something about — Hollywood was about seven years behind. Wait, no — bad choice of words. Even on AIDS, Hollywood got caught with its pants down. Still no good. On AIDS, Hollywood got it right in the end. Oh, dear ... Note to self: Must hire two more interns to screen hate mail.

    The point is: The Hollywood set didn't start wearing AIDS ribbons to the Oscars until 1992:

    — 10 years after The New York Times described AIDS;

    — seven years after AIDS was the cover story on Life magazine;

    — seven years after AIDS was in People magazine;

    — five years after Oprah did a show on AIDS.

    Only recently has George Clooney heard about segregation. (He's against it.) But he still can't nail down the details of something that ended nearly half a century ago.

    Contrary to Clooney's impassioned speech, no theaters ever forced black people to sit in the back. If you were trying to oppress people, you would make them sit in the front, which are the worst seats in the house. Or you'd just make them watch a George Clooney movie.

    We're not supposed to quote more than around 4 paragraphs to avoid copyright issues. I kinda have the hots for Ann and don't want her pissed at me.

    I have always thought Ann Coulter is a high-strung beetch who needs to get laid more often.

    I thought she should go back to giving blow jobs to Bob Guccione.

    I find it interesting that she quotes NYT, Oprah, Life and Time Magazine. Could situational ethics be raising its head here once again?

    No, i dont think so--she is mentioning the NYT, Oprah, ect because she knows liberals read and watch those---if she stated that Hollywood wore Aids ribbons 10 years after an article in "scientific monthly" and 5 years after Rush Limbaugh talked about it, then there would be a good reason why hollywood waited so long. but since it was news in the medium that hollywood liberals read, it makes it that more damning.

    Geez, let's talk about how long it took Ann's hero Ronald Reagan to mention AIDS. Remember Reagan was actually in power, Hollywood is not.

    We were talking about prominent people who failed to mention AIDS, nobody's accusing Reagan of causing them. Likewise, I don't think Ann was taking Hollywood to task for causing AIDS, just for not making it an issue out of it earlier. Actually, I was just throwing Ann's argument back at her.

    No-Hollywood is as phony as a $3 bill. The see it as thier mission to ram thier socialist ideologies down our throats by presenting it as "entertainment". Can you name the last movie that showed the US in a positive light?

    FYI... we're off topic here but I'm willing to indulge you:
    Jarhead, but then again it looks like it sucked. Is it a minority? Probably, but look at history - the arts have always leaned away from the establishment.

    By the way, in my humble opinion, a movie like Fahrenheit 9/11 showed America in a very positive light. It showed that there are people here who aren't simply sheep that follow a government that itself only follows the money. It showed that there are people who know that we're better than we've recently shown. That to me is a lot more positive than the presidential ballwashing you'd like to watch.

    Of course, if Hollywood are the money whores they're made out to be (and I think they are), they will cater to every segment of society that would go to see their movies. ELO's argument was a silly one.

    Fewer people are going to the movies, but IMO that has less to do with the themes so much as the movies coming to our living rooms...and as far as I know, you can't smoke pot and drink gin in the cinemas yet.

    Harry Boy...you are my favorite simian on this board still, but ELO is catching up fast.

    They truly are. I have intelligent debates with conservatives all the time, but ELO and Harry Boy like to throw out red herrings and platitudes, then drop something into the discussion that has nothing to do with the topic. Not that I know them personally, but with those two I really believe it's a lack of intelligence. Conservatives can be smart, but I guess nobody told these two conservatives that.

    I would rather watch the Three Stooges smash each other in the face with frying pans than pay money to go and watch the Politically Correct, Anti American, Anti Christian, Sex Crazy, Fouled Mouth, Bloody Sh!t Bile that the Hollywood Scum Pile trys to force on the public today.

    Holly F-cking Wood is trying their best to "Dumb Down" America. :bricks:
